SQL Server should only be using 1 open port? :w00t:
Actually - Microsoft recommends multiple ports to help balance the "listening" load on busy servers.
From http://support.microsoft.com/kb/294453 - "To increase the performance of the SQL Server server to simultaneously process more connection requests, additional TCP ports to listen on can be added".
